What Do the Samaritans Do?

Samaritans is a charity that aims to prevent deaths by suicide, campaigning to make suicide prevention a national and local priority. 

They do this by giving people ways to cope and the skills to be there for others when in need. Samaritans work with people, in prisons, schools, hospitals and on the rail network, who are going through a difficult time. 

As well as listening to and supporting people and communities in times of need, they also train others to do the same.

Every year, Samaritans volunteers spend over one million hours answering calls for help through their unique 24-hour listening service, email, letter, and face-to-face.

What are the Samaritan’s Values?

The Samaritans charity encompasses five core values. These include: 

  • Listening – talking about feelings can alleviate distress and help people come to a better understanding of their situation and the options open to them
  • Confidentiality – if people feel safe, they’re more willing to open up about their feelings 
  • Non-judgemental – people must be able to talk without fear of prejudice or rejection
  • People making their own decisions – people should have the right to find their own solution instead of being told what to do 
  • Human contact – giving people time and empathy meets a fundamental emotional need and reduces despair

“Slothmove is really good, I was looking at some thing’s to see how I can move my address over quickly and then I came across this. I was a bit skeptical at first due to it being something online and I thought it was a scam but nope, it was really quick and easy to get it all done and dusted.”
